1st CEL
« on: April 17, 2006, 01:13:17 PM »
I was coming home from snowboarding yesterday and I threw a CEL. Everything sounded okay although the car seemed to be a little sluggish. Any ideas? I think the slowness involved going up in elevation but the car has never struggled before. Will the CEL go away if there is not a problem?

find someone nearby with a vag-com or pro-diag to read the code for you and to tell you what is causing the CEL.  

If you are heading up north at all, I'd be glad to read the code for you.
